Let’s kick off the Holiday Season with some fast-paced writing and short but powerful reading sessions!

Our readers and workshop leaders this year include well-known poets and prose writers, including Mary Pipher, Tommy Dean, Zedeka Poindexter, Steve Edwards, Monica Joy, JV Brummels, Kelly Madigan, Cliff Taylor, and LeeAnn Roripaugh! 

The format is simple. We alternate five-minute readings with 15-minute mini writing workshops that start with a craft talk and end with a writing prompt. Five readings, four workshops, so you’ll not only leave the event inspired but you’ll have some new writing too!

After the presentations there’s time for a Q&A with writers and other participants.

Fill up your fountain pens, sharpen your pencils or charge those computers! This event is flat out fast-paced fun!
